I Was Nominated For A Liebster Award!!!

 What was the best gift you've ever gotten? Well, on Christmas Day, Gauri from Brighter Alleys commented on my blog nominating me for an award! This is the Liebster Award, which is an appreciation award bloggers give to other bloggers. Gauri's a teen blogger who's just a little bit older than me, who was nominated by FOUR different bloggers (which shows how awesome her posts are.)

Before I've even published this post, I can say that this award is a great one. Everyone's a winner and it creates a community between bloggers.

There are five different rules to participate in the Liebster Award:

#1. Thank the blogger who's nominated you.
#2. Answer the 11 questions they asked.
#3. Nominate at least 10 different bloggers for the Liebster Award.
#4. Comment on their blogs so they know that they're nominated. Otherwise, there will probably be some confusion :)
#5. Ask the bloggers you nominated 11 questions and write about all of this in a blog post.

Here are the eleven questions Gauri asked me:

What is success according to you?
I think I've reached success whenever I'm happy, proud of myself or have achieved something I was working towards. For example, my blog isn't huge, but for the past three months I've had 4000+ monthly views. I think in order to be successful, you can't hold yourself to the standards of someone higher than you with whatever it may be. 

How do you take care of your mental health?
Like many people, 2020/COVID has definitely impacted my mental health. Honestly, the main way I take care of myself is to Facetime one of my friends and get whatever I'm thinking about off my chest. They're good sports. When I'm alone sewing, journaling, crafting and drawing is very therapeutic for me. I have a fair number of anxiety but not in this year, y'all!
 
Which public figure do you admire?
Honestly, I'm not quite sure. I don't pay much attention to social media or public figures. I live under a rock, okay? Generally speaking, the people I admire the most are the ones who can follow their dreams.

What do you want to change about yourself?
One of my New Year's resolutions is to get rid of my blogging worries. Other bloggers, please let me know if this is #relatable but I have a hard time finding a good balance with how frequent my posts are. I worry that I post too often, but then get antsy if I don't post every three days. This year, I'm going to not rush myself and work on content that I'm really proud of.
 
Which one country do you want to visit?
Paris, Paris, Paris!!! Ever since I was little and wanted to be fashion designer, I've wanted to go to Paris, France. I will say, half of the reason I want to go there is for the fashion and shopping part. I don't know when I'll ever get a chance to go there, with COVID and all, but I'm sure I'll love it as much as I think.

If you could buy three different things for free, what would you buy?
I'd buy three really expensive things: a designer outfit, a sports car, and finally a mansion. Sounds fancy, right? Well, I don't actually want any of those things (or ever) so I'd cash them in for money. Pretty smart, huh? That way I could buy more than three things (notebooks, chocolate, fabric, clothes) and be set up for when I need to get a house and pay the bills.

What cause would you give a ton of money to donate to?
Usually, my answer to this would be World Wildlife Fund but I'm actually working on a fashion-related charity project right now. Check out the link below for details, but essentially I'm starting a business! I'll be donating to Remake, which is all about supporting sustainable fashion. I do that with my sewing, thrifting and DIYing.

Why did you chose blogging?
I actually wanted to start a blog for over a year until I finally did last July. I chose blogging because I wanted an opportunity to obsess over fashion and show the clothes I've sewed to others. I also love to write, so its a way for me to combine my two hobbies.

Where do you live?
I live in Canada! I'd like to address some of the stereotypes quickly: I don't hug trees, I don't skate to school, I don't drink maple syrup from the bottle or live in an igloo. However, it does get pretty cold. I love the snow, but it does get a little annoying when we have snow for six months straight! Right now I'm trying to enjoy it, as its only January.

What are three of your favourite brands/companies?
Indigo/Chapters, first of all. I could live there. One time one of my friends offered to buy me an Indigo store for my birthday! My favourite clothing stores are Zara and H&M. When it comes to ice cream (the final most-important factor of my life) Baskin Robbins. Always.

Last but not least, if given a time machine what moment would you re-live?
I'd go back to last year. Funny, right? Even though everyone hates 2020? Well, last February (right before the pandemic) is the best time I've ever has at school. My family moved over the summer, and I really miss my old friends, especially the ones that are hard to reach, my neighborhood and school.

Here are the 10 bloggers I've nominated! Some are bloggers who only started blogging last week, others are very proffesional, but you should go see all of their blogs. I actually had an incredibly hard time finding 10 bloggers I liked and actually post, but I am very happy with the 10 nominees.

Finally, here are the 11 questions for my nominees to answer:

1) Why did you start blogging?
2) What is success according to you?
3) What's your favourite hobby/interest?
4) What do you want to change about yourself?
5) What advice do you have to give to a new blogger?
